Nanoparticles

We fabricate and/or characterize a varierty of nanoparticles primarily for use in the imaging and optofluidic projects.Examples include barium titanate particles as second harmonic generation imaging probes,  lithium niobate nanowires, and optically sensitive vesicles for drug delivery applications.
